Cody Wilson, 3D-Printed Gun Pioneer, Arrested in Taiwan - Hit & Run

TAIPEI, Taiwan Authorities in Taiwan arrested the owner of a Texas company that sells plans to make untraceable 3-D printed guns who is wanted in the us over an accusation that he had sex with an underage girl and paid her $500 afterward, official media reported. Wilson traveled to Taiwan earlier this month after allegedly being tipped off by the 16-year-old victim's friend about the investigation into the sexual assault.

Taiwan does not have an extradition treaty with the USA, but local police have nevertheless cooperated with authorities in the U.S.to arrest Wilson, and - according to translated reports from Taiwanese media - potentially deport him to his home country.

Wilson then missed a scheduled flight home on Wednesday, prompting police in Austin to seek help from the US Marshals Lone Star Fugitive Task Force.

The U.S. Marshals Service is aware of suspect Cody Wilson's arrest, the agency said in a statement Friday. "We are fully engaged with our global partners on this matter".

The alleged victim, who has not been named, said that she had been paid $500 to have sex with the man in a hotel and that she had met the man, who used the name 'Sanjuro, ' through the website SugarDaddyMeet.com, CBS Austin reported. They met in Austin on August 15 where Wilson brought her back to a hotel room. The National Immigration Agency is now urging the American Institute in Taiwan to issue a valid travel document for Mr Wilson, so he can be deported back to the USA accordingly. Liberty Times notes Wilson did not have any contraband on him at the time of the arrest, and he appeared calm when approached by authorities.

Wilson is the founder and director of Defense Distributed, a nonprofit that publishes open-source gun designs. The claim, which was originally reported to police by the victim's counselor, has allegedly been corroborated by multiple surveillance videos.

Cody Wilson, the Austin man who gained national attention for attempting to make blueprints for 3D-printed guns available online, was arrested in Taipei, Taiwan, on Friday, according to Taiwanese media reports. He later dropped her off at a Whataburger restaurant, she told authorities. Wilson faces up to 20 years in prison if convicted.
